Man accused of destroying property after being refused after-hours service at North Side bar

Man showed up after hours wanting a drink, according to bar owner

SAN ANTONIO – A man who is accused of going on a rampage and destroying property at a North Side bar early Thursday is in police custody.

He is being detained for an emergency evaluation, according to Castle Hills police.

A sergeant with the Castle Hills Police Department says his officers were flagged down after 2:30 a.m. by someone wanting help regarding the incident at McFinnigan’s Pub.

The bar, located in the 7200 block of Blanco Road, technically is in the San Antonio city limits.

Still, the Castle Hills officers responded and found the man, who had stripped off all his clothing, outside the business.

The bar owner later told KSAT 12 News that his staff had refused to serve him because he showed up after hours.

He says the man, who didn’t speak any English, also appeared to be triggered by the language barrier.

The owner says the man then climbed over a wrought iron fence into a patio area where he smashed a big screen television and broke out a couple of windows.

Castle Hills police say they suspect he was under some sort of drug.

SAPD officers also responded to the scene and took the man into custody.

Although he is undergoing a medical evaluation, it’s possible he also could face criminal charges.
